Coldplay – Sparks lyrics

Did I drive you away?

I know what you'll say,

You say, "Oh, sing one we know,"

But I promise you this,

I'll always look out for you,

That's what I'll do.

I say "oh,"

I say "oh."

My heart is yours,

It's you that I hold on to,

That's what I do,

And I know I was wrong,

But I won't let you down,

(Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah I will, yes I will...)

I say "oh,"

I cry "oh."

Yeah I saw sparks,

Yeah I saw sparks,

And I saw sparks,

Yeah I saw sparks,

Sing it out.

La, la, la, la, oh...

La, la, la, la, oh...

La, la, la, la, oh...

Sparks meanings

    I feel this is definitely about a relationship of some sort. Letting the one you love down, and when they're gone you still feel the need to express how you feel, even if you know they're not listening and that they won't take you back. Regardless if you've changed or not. Somehow, saying it all helps you find your inner peace. Knowing that though you've made mistakes and possibly taken things for granted, the person means everything to you and you do love them, and if you had the chance, you'd go back and really express it because the sparks are there.

    This song is about a couple, and he knows he let her down. He excepts the fact that he made multiple mistakes and that she deserves better. But, he is still beaten up and upset about not having her anymore after she leaves. He is mostly upset because he felt a huge connection with her that he hasn't felt with anyone else before and he knows he is the one that messed it all up.
